The Devil Couldn’t Break Me






The horrifying true story of a young girl held captive by very nasty and dangerous men during the Yugoslavian conflict. Refugees are in the headlines every day now, and the horrors Laura encountered highlight the sheer terror people face when their country is torn apart by hatred, their homes destroyed, their loved ones separated from them. This is very much a tale for our times.
